years of president obama's first term. about 60 bills passed before the august recess. and then the 2010 midterms happened. and congressional productivity plummeted. by that august recess, congress only managed to pass 28 bills that ultimately turned out to be the least productive session of congress ever. it was even worse than the do-nothing congress of the 1940s. they passed 28 bills by the august recess. this congress? 22. that's it. as "the washington post" noted today, this session of congress is on track to become even worse than the last session because they've been worse than the do 95 nothing congress. so as much as it might look like there's some incremental movement on some important things like student loans and senate confirmations, this still might be the least-productive congress that we have seen in our lifetimes. but maybe even worse than the possibility that this congress is on track to beat out the infamous do-nothing congress is the prospect that was raised today by the former house speaker and current minority leader in the house, nancy pelosi. >> after more than si

people who make $9 an hour. so the benefit of the obama coalition, is president obama was a figure who inspired people who made a little bit less money to go out and vote, so it changed some of the math about elections. which is tougher to do in a midterm. the reality, though, is until we figure out how we handle this, we are not going to have an economy that is growing. because we just are not putting enough money in enough of the people's hands who are going to do well. if we think about what's happening with our gridlock, the average male worker makes $900 less in real terms than he did in the late 1960s. these men, particularly middle-aged, white guys in the country, who have seen their wages stagnate, their wives have to go to work, their kids have to come back home, and no one's really talking to them about how do they make things better. and they're pissed, excuse me my language. and they are stopping action in congress -- >> so, right, but so, i was going to say, so, david, how do we get that angry white man, with the depressed wages, how do we get him to see his interest as co
